History

Since its founding in 1849, Reichsrat von Buhl has stood for some of the noblest Riesling from the best vineyards of Mittelhaardt. We are more than ever committed to this tradition and see it as a quality promise. Born of the Jordan’schen division that distributed the vineyards of Andreas Jordan to his children Ludwig Andreas, Josephine and Margaret, Reichsrat von Buhl grew by the marriage of Armand Buhl to Juliane Schellhorn-Wallbillisch, the daughter of a Forster winemaker. After the death of the childless Frieda Piper von Buhl, the winery passed to George Enoch von und zu Guttenberg. From 1989 to 2013 the winery was leased, During the time of the lease it was sold to Achim Niederberger who set up a new team to run his estate in 2013. This is a very brief summary of the long and exciting history of Reichsrat von Buhl.

When you visit us, you will feel the winds of renewal blowing everywhere on the grounds of Buhl, in the buildings and vineyards. Von Buhl remains stylistically Von Buhl, which was important to us from the beginning. Our wines are vinified to reflect their origins, in a timeless style, which is interpreted cautiously and respectfully by our new winemaker and technical director Mathieu Kauffmann. A new chapter in the history of Reichsrat von Buhl has begun.

 

Reichsrat von Buhl has been a family-owned winery for more than 150 years, and has belonged to the circle of the most prestigious wineries in Germany for just as long. Since it was founded in 1849, Reichsrat von Buhl has made its wines in a terroir-dominated, timeless style that has never been oriented to fashion, but always to the grapes’ origins in the best soils of Deidesheimer and Forster. Reichsrat von Buhl is certified organic, and is an active ambassador of both natural, sustainable viticulture and of the best German wines. Since 2013, it has been led by a new team including managing director Richard Grosche and technical director Mathieu Kauffmann. Long term viticultural manager Werner Sebastian remains responsible for the vineyards.

 Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Writer (Germany)  tasted  2 wines  from  Weingut Reichsrat Von Buhl . In a tasting of  15 wines 

F.X. Pichler 2017 Ried Steinertal Riesling Smaragd is intense and flinty on the dark and stony, very flinty and coolish nose with its concentrated white peach and lime aromas. Full-bodied, sharp, super pure and mineral on the palate, this is a full-bodied, tight, fresh and serious wine with a long and tensioned but still terribly young finish. Great complexity and tension! One of the finest Rieslings from the Danube River in 2017. Tasted in Oberloiben/Wachau, September 2018.

 Markus Del Monego MW , Wine Writer (Germany)  tasted  6 wines  from  Weingut Reichsrat Von Buhl . In a tasting of  135 wines 

As every year on the last Monday and Tuesday of August, the VDP showed a huge array of over 500 wines from the german Grand Cru vineyards, designated as Grosses Gewächs, in a preview tasting for professionals and the press. The tasting was hold on August 29 and 30, 2016.


As the sheer quantity of wines available was too much for a short tasting session, I focussed on the grape variety Riesling and on the rather classic areas such as Mosel, Saar, Ruwer, Pfalz, Rheingau, Nahe and Mittelrhein. From these wine regions I have tasted all Rieslings available. In addition I also tasted a small selection of Riesling from Rheinhessen. The tasting showed a very high and rather homogenous quality level due to good conditions in 2015 but also applied experience and knowledge of the vintners. A very successful tasting with highly recommendable wines.

 Marie Ahm, Wine Writer (Denmark)  tasted  1 wines  from  Weingut Reichsrat Von Buhl . In a tasting of  11 wines 

“Expressive nose of white flowers, fresh almond, dried orange peel, peach stone, freshly cut green grass and a dense minerality. A complexity so profound that it is almost impossible to grasp the potential of this wine. So harmonious for such a young wine. This a one of the most sensual and tempting young Rieslings I ever tasted. So complete, hugely structured and elegant at the same time! What an emotional experience!”
